Skillly, a hand-picked tutorial site for environmentally friendly videos, is making its fundraising debut. The video declares that in today's world we need to "re-skill for a resilient future; it's time to get Skillly." The video-hosting site would feature smart videos that show people how to live a more natural and eco-friendly life.
Ultimately, Skillly aims to be "a way to find content about natural living without having to sort through YouTube or Vimeo." As the environmental movement grows and branches out into more areas, this is an interesting take on reaching people and spreading eco-messages online. Currently, the Skillly site is in its crowd-sourced fundraising stage on We the Trees and is attempting to find its footing with the online community.
